Toilet seats are traditionally white and match the toilet's colour. Other seats are basic black models. With the developments in toilet seat design, you can think artistically and choose seats in one unusual colour or in several colours and designs. The seat then becomes a functional bathroom accessory.
Match Other Bathroom Colors
Toilet seats are often sold separately from the actual toilet, so you can install the seat of your choice as long as its size matches the toilet bowl, which will be either round or elongated. Especially if your toilet is basic white, pick a seat that matches the rest of your bathroom's colours. For example, if your bathroom curtains are red, choose a red seat.
You don't have to limit your choice in toilet seats to simply a matter of colours. If you have an affinity for small yellow ducks, tropical fish, sailboats or even seahorses, you can visit online sites that offer a selection of decorative seats. These seats are used not only to match a bathroom's colour scheme, they can promote a theme for the room too. A decorative seat is an especially fun idea for children's bathrooms.
Normally, homeowners install closed-front seats on their toilets, while public facilities use open-front seats. Switch things up and install an open-front seat on your home toilet. As more consumers choose open-front seats, these seats are becoming available in a wider range of colours and designs and also have lids, just like closed-front seats. These seats are available for either round toilet bowls or elongated bowls.
If you're accustomed to plastic toilet seats, choose a wood seat when you install a new one. Although wood seats are generally harder to locate than plastic ones and are usually more expensive, they do have their benefits as well. Wood is thicker, sturdier and warmer to sit on when compared with plastic seats. Just like plastic seats that have decorative designs, wood seats are also often handcrafted and hand-painted, with a selection of artwork to choose from. If your home has a rustic setting, such as a log cabin, a wood seat provides a complementary, decorative touch.
Although they are basically functional, speciality toilet seats can also provide an added element of fun comfort to a bathroom. For example, heated toilet seats are available and are much more enjoyable in cold climates. Slow closing seats also provide a noise-relieving alternative to the sounds of seats slamming down on the bowl.
